Be predictable

A person’s life is only partially revealed to others. Only via dialogue, a small number of shared events, and your social media feeds can even your closest friends truly know you. From these fragmentary impressions, we form comprehensive mental pictures of the people we know, and we yearn for stability.
Have you ever witnessed the shock and dismay on someone else’s face when you revealed a substantial shift in your own beliefs or plans? People often say things like, “But I thought you two were so happy together?”
This is because peace and order in the world are something that all humans yearn for. Being constant and relatively predictable is essential if you want to create a relationship with someone, especially via the internet.
Maintaining a consistent voice and publishing at regular intervals can help your readers learn what they can anticipate from you.
